  • Logo Rational

    A Logo, which falls under a category that embraces both the essence of typography and imagery, has been developed. This is normally known as an alphagyphic symbol. A combination of pictorial nuance, in this case, the Oil Drop (Oil and Gas Industry) and Industrial Icon (representing the end users Industries and homes), creating and impression of 'G' for Gas as one of the main vital energy resources in the empowerment of growth and international development.

    The combination also creates alphabets 'a' and 'm' which represents Association and Malaysia. The strong yet bold parallel lines, linking both pictorial elements, create a distinct and avant garde mark.

    The design is simple, as it is intended to be. As such it represents sophistications and style - attributes that reflect internationalism. The lines also symbolise pipelines and gas distribution networks, local and international.

    Colours chosen for the Corporate Signature have reference to that of the Malaysian Flag, which are Blue and Red. Black is introduced to give contrast to the Logo. For the Logotype, Frutiger Light typeface is adopted for its simplicity and elegance.
